University Rover Challenge (URC)
URC is a multi-stage competition which involves designing, building, and commanding a rover-style robot in both manual and autonomous challenges. The competition is meant to simulate the conditions faced by Mars rovers, and as such consists of several missions: determining the presence of life in soil samples, retrieving rocks and other items, servicing equipment, and autonomously navigating the surface of “Mars” (actually the deserts of Utah). Teams must qualify through various reports and video submissions before being allowed to compete. The RoboNav team hopes to qualify for this competition starting in 2022.
Sundays – 4 to 7 PM
